ABOUT THE BOOK:
One dark Los Angeles night, Beth Crawford is driving home from a dinner party, furious at her husband for spending money they don’t have. A few blocks away, a scantily dressed woman in a blonde wig lugs a suitcase full of blood-spattered cash toward a bus stop. In the streets between the two women, police cars flash past, racing to the scene of a quadruple homicide, a botched drug deal in which an undercover LAPD officer is among the dead….
With propulsive energy, deliciously unpredictable characters, and masterful plotting, FRAMED is a fresh take on this bestselling category, offering the smart, dark twists of Gone Girl and Luckiest Girl Alive with powerful suspense and a cast of characters that will get deep under your skin.
This book was addictive, edge-of-your-seat entertainment! This is the first novel I have read by this author and I will definitely be on the lookout for more.
Framed follows the story of Beth and her husband Jay. They are out one day for drinks with their friends Emily and Peter. Jay flirts with Emily. Then enter Cassie, she is an old friend of Beth’s. Cassie wants to ask for Beth’s help, but can she bring herself to ask for help after all these years? Cassie’s boyfriend is Rick and he ends up dead. What happened? Is Cassie responsible? Detective Goode is at the scene of a house, there there are bodies and blood everywhere.
I loved the character development in this novel. There are many characters in this story and it is easy to follow along and keep them all straight. Most characters are very likeable and fun to read about. I enjoyed the alternate POV’s as the story evolves and is told from Beth’s, Jay’s, Cassie’s, Rick’s, and Detective Goode’s POV. I find that novels that are told from many different POV’s are very interesting as you get to learn so many different things from each character. Everyone sees things differently, interprets things differently, and it is fun to get all the various pieces and put them all together. Not everyone is as they appear to be and not everyone is being honest, not only with themselves but with everyone around them.
I devoured this book and I highly recommend this book! There are so many twists and turns in this book that you will love, and will keep you wanting to read more. With a big twist at the end that you will not see coming, you will be HOOKED! Totally mind blown right now!
